Osiris rescripts

Osiris rescripts
A Spanish rendition (Ѻ), based on the Dorothy Murdock stylized film Zeitgeist, of the “Last supper of Christ”, with the 12 main gods born on Dec 25, namely: Hermes, Dionysus, Zarathustra, Krishna, Jesus, Horus, Mithra, Heracles, Tammuz, and Adonis, eleven of whom are rescripts of the “Osiris-Horus motif” a god syncretism, formulated in the early Dynastic Egypt, each based on older astro-theology models.
In religio-mythology, Osiris rescripts, aka "Osiris-Horus rescripts", variants of Osiris or “names of Osiris”, refers to the cultural variants or translations of the astro-theological story of the Egyptian dying and rising god Osiris, based on the human-shaped dying and rising constellation Orion, which perceptually “rises” each Dec, nightly, from a horizontal to a vertical position, synretized with Horus, the oldest god of Egypt, who was re-conceptualized as the son of Osiris in Heliopolis creation myth.

Overview
In c.385AD, Ausonius equated Osiris with four other gods: Dionysus, Bacchus, Liber, and Adonis. [1]

In 1791, Constantin Volney, in his The Ruins, §XXI: Problem of Religious Contradictions, connected, loosely, the following god-men: Zoroaster, Jesus, Buddha, and Mithra, via a dialogue.

In 1812, Sergey Uvarov, in his On the Mysteries of Eleusis, citing Ausonius, equated Osiris with five other gods: Tammuz, Dionysus, Bacchus, Liber, and Adonis. [1]

In 1875, Kersey Graves, in his The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors, discusses 16 “main” dying and rising gods, along with 30 other men-like holy figures who died and were said to ascend into heaven. [2]

Quotes
The following are related quotes:

Osiris was known amongst the Phoenicians, in Syria and Cyprus, by the title of Thammuz [Tammuz], or Adonis. Ausonius (c.385AD), in the following verses, asserts the identity of Osiris, Dionysus, Bacchus, Liber, and Adonis: ‘Ogygia me Bacchum vocat, Osirin Aegyptus putat, Mystae Phanacem nominant, Dionyson Indi existimant, Romana sacra Liberum, Arabica gens Adoneum, Lucanianus Pantheum’.”
Sergey Uvarov (1812), “On the Mysteries of Eleusis” [1]

Tammuz and Adonis are proved to be the same divinity. Jerome, who lived in Palestine when the rites of Tammuz were observed, up to the very time when he wrote, expressly identifies Tammuz and Adonis (vol. ii., p. 353), in his Commentary on Ezekiel, viii. 14, where the Jewish women are represented as weeping for Tammuz; and the testimony of Jerome on this subject is universally admitted. Then the mode in which the rites of Tammuz or Adonis were celebrated in Syria was essentially the same as the rites of Osiris. The statement of Lucian (De Dea Syria, vol. iii., p. 454) strikingly shows this, and Bunsen (vol. i., p. 443) distinctly admits it. The identity of Osiris and Nimrod has been largely proved in the body of this work. When, therefore, Tammuz or Adonis is identified with Osiris, the identification of Tammuz with Nimrod follows of course. ”
Alexander Hislop (1853), The Two Babylons
